(((Updated 9/19/04))))


The Overnightscape - "A New Kind of Radio Show" - Join host Frank Edward Nora on a pleasantly insane ramble through the mysteries of life, culture, current events, beverages, malls, and beyond! (This is my show, so I figured I'd put it first!)

Crap and Stuff - "Part of the New Time Radio phenomenon, Crap and Stuff is a one-person audio show that's not on the radio, but available as a file stream or download. "

Static Internet Radio - Great weekly show with Bob and Miles, two midwesterners that talk about their lives and all sorts of stuff. New show every Wednesday, plus an archive of about a year's worth of shows, in Quicktime format. Always a great listen! (Click the "OLD" link to find MP3s)

SITFUSO - "Audio programme that defies logic, common sense, and good taste." It's like a modern, New Time Radio version of "Monty Python's Flying Circus". 5 episodes so far, check 'em out!

A Career in the Weeklies - Episodic comedy adventure soap opera that tells the story of Eric Shea, and his strange career with a weekly Toronto paper called THE ANTI-NEWS WEEKLY. The paper was founded by an enigmatic madman named Johnny Whispers. The stories revolve around Eric and Johnny's efforts to make the newspaper into the most hated institution in the city. So far there are 9 episodes. (The MP3s are there, but there don't appear to be any direct download links. You can find the locations of the MP3s in the HTML source or the M3U files.)

Hate The Radio - Web-broadcast audio program featuring Al & Law, plus web audio directory and message board.

The Basement Internet Show - "Eclectic internet talk show featuring interviews with interesting and unusual guests."

RetroGaming Radio - This is quintessential New Time Radio! A show all about classic video games, hosted by Shane R. Monroe. Many episodes are available as free MP3 downloads. The rest can be purchased on CD-ROM.

Prophecy Keepers Radio - "Weekly Talk Radio Show about Native Prophecy - and about the visit 200 years ago of our White Bearded God whom we call 'The God of Wind and Waters' from a strictly Native American point-of-view."

The Wonder Fears - 40-minute audio drama. "The whole story is based from a perspective of a child of 9-13 years old - much like the TV show, 'The Wonder Years' - at a time when monsters and scary situations are far too real."

Apotheosis - A hyperactive "intellectual comedy" kind of audio drama. Actually quite good. Free lo-fi streaming, with audio CDs available for purchase.

Ghostly Talk - Show about ghosts and stuff.

Digital Llama Radio - Two different shows. "Fanfilm Radio" is all about the world of Star Wars fan films. "Player's Guide" is all about role-playing games and the like. Both feature a bunch of inspired geeks being goofy. As far as I can tell, all shows are freely downloadable as MP3. UPDATE: Their old site is down, and it looks like the new site (hosted by only has Fanfilm Radio, and not Player's Guide...

Soundings - "The Audio Theatre of Jeff Green."

Crunchy Frog Comedy - Audio comedy.

These sites all have at least some MP3s to download. Some you may have to find via M3Us (more info on this to come) - All about a controversial underground tape from 1986 which parodies an Indian reservation radio station in Alberta, Canada. Definitely worth checking out. MP3 downloads of the entire tape are available.

Opsound - Open Sound Resource - "Opsound is a record label using an open source, copyleft model, an experiment in practical gift economics, a laboratory for new ways of releasing music." A very interesting idea. Mostly music, but some stuff that kind of veers into this list's territory...

The Hour of Slack - "The Church of the SubGenius Radio Ministry". Is it a fake cult pretending to be a real cult, or the other way around?

Radio Tiki - "Eclectic news and humor".

The Dave and Ward Show - Internet comedy radio show. "Funny guys".

The Soul Patrol - Internet audio comedy series.

Virtually American - A variety of audio dramas.

ZBS - Contemporary audio drama.

Not From Space - Audio movie, available on CD. Free samples available.

NAKEDGREMLIN! - Interview with Javier - A short audio documentary worth a listen. Looks to be the only audio thing on the site.

Attica Rebellion audio documentary - "29-minute documentary about the origins of the modern anti-prison movement."

Freedom Archives - "The Freedom Archives contain over 5000 hours of audiotapes. These recordings date from the late-60s to the mid-90s and chronicle the progressive history of the Bay Area, the United States, and international solidarity movements. The collection includes weekly news/ poetry/ music programs broadcast on several educational radio stations; in-depth interviews and reports on social and cultural issues; diverse activist voices; original and recorded music, poetry, original sound collages; and an extensive La Raza collection."

The Radio Trip - Broadcast radio show. "The Radio Trip with Ben Churchill featuring Comedy Bits, Web Parodies, Sound Bites, & Literature." Interesting radio show with lots of MP3 clips and Real streaming shows.

Mike Hodel's Hour 25 - Broadcast radio show. "Science Fiction Radio for Southern California since 1972."

Lots of good stuff, but unfortunately these sites don't offer their content as MP3 downloads. Most of this stuff you will need to listen to on your computer as opposed to using a portable/car player. [audio technology, as best I can determine, in brackets]

The John and Keith Show - "John and Keith are your typical 25 year old Computer Programmers.... worthless Mountain Dew addicts with severe emotional problems.

Well, in order for them to fight back (.... kinda), they've decided to start an Internet Talk Radio show!
